Setting up a 180. Need input!
Hey guys, I'm going to get a 180 gallon in the next 3-4 months. I plan to build my own stand to match my living room furniture, so that part is taken care of. Will probably start making some of the parts purchases this month so I can start working on the plumbing.
The rest, I'm open to suggestions. Here's what I'm thinking.
Lighting: Coralife Aqualight Pro 3x150 4x96
Filtration: Ocean Clear 318 and 325
Heating: inline Pentair modules (probably 2-3 doubles w/200 watt heaters in case I decide I want to keep discus). Anyone know what kind of heaters will fit in the pentair units?
UV: Probably a Pentair, unsure what size. Was thinking 25 Watts?
CO2: Thinking about a rex grigg model with mazzei injector
PUMP: not sure. Maybe a Poseidon? Something quiet though.
Going to control everything with an ACIII (don't think I need the ACIII pro).
Anything I left out or substitutions...lemme know!
I got a lot of the inspiration from Tom Barr and Scolley's 180's, so thanks to those guys for their thorough documentation!
